Time to announce tonight’s least surprising news: President Barack Obama has won D.C.’s three electoral votes. NBC News called the District for Obama as soon as the polls closed at 8 p.m.
That puts Obama a mere 267 electoral votes away from a second term. (It also continues an uninterrupted streak of Democratic victories here since D.C. got the right to vote in presidential elections in 1964.)
Check back with Washington City Paper throughout the night for less obvious updates on local elections.
